The changes may cause psychological problems and usually the body will feel threatened due to this change. If your body continues to feel threatened, it will reach to a point that it will have a panic attack. Yes, there seems no real fear in this situation. The fear that the body feels is irrational and it is in the mind. This is why most people can’t understand people with panic attacks.
Most often, we undergo physical changes due to insufficient amount of essential nutrients. We lack the capacity to do our daily activities if don’t ingest the right amount of vitamins and minerals. If we keep on pushing and pushing our body, we will trigger panic attack. In this situation, the panic attack is triggered to help us realize that our body had enough already and it will have to save itself.
Aside from that, lack of vitamins and nutrients have negative effects on the body that can lead to health complication. If the body notices this association, it will be in the state of post traumatic stress disorder. This means that once the body felt that it has insufficient essential nutrients, the panic attack may be triggered.

Aside from medications, too much consumption of alcohol can also trigger panic attacks. If you feel you have high risk to panic attack, seek a medical doctor as soon as possible.
